Salt Lake City Sights

Alpine Loop Scenic Byway

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Updated 04/29/2014

Fodor's Review

Beyond Timpanogos Cave, Route 92 continues up American Fork Canyon before branching off to climb behind Mount Timpanogos itself. Designated the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, this twisting road presents stunning scenery before dropping into Provo Canyon to the south. The 9-mi Timpooneke Trail and the 8-mi Aspen Trail, both off the byway, reach the summit of Mount Timpanogos. Closed in winter, the Alpine Loop isn't recommended for motor homes and trucks pulling trailers. This

is the roundabout way to get to scenic Provo Canyon from I–15; the more direct route is U.S. 189 east from Orem.
